How to implement more electric vehicle chargers in city environments for people living in apartments!
This project was in collaboration with Covestro, a company that specializes in different types of plastic and technology. We were asked to look in to charging stations for electrical vehicles.
I was assigned to design EV chargers for city environments and people living in apartments. This was to be done by using already existing electricity sources, such as light poles, to enable more EV chargers to be installed in the city.

Visibility is a problem, it is hard to know where the EV chargers are located
90% of all EV owners prefer charging at home over night. This is easy if you own a house but more difficult in cities due to the low amount of charging stations.
always get dirty and if you bring your own there is
a risk for it to get stolen
What if we could use already existing electricity sources in cities to install EV chargers to increase the amount where people actually live?
